    Im ordering my nikon d60 from amazon.. but the camera doesnt have the normal "insurance" thing available, for drops, accidents ect..
    is there somewhere I can get this insurance? it it worth it?
    or is it better to just take the camera to a repair shop when needed

    im doing all i can to make sure accidents DONT happen lol i bought rubber body armor for the camera, a bag, ect.. but you never know and if im paying $546 for a camera i want to be certain i have it just in case

    I just have the Nikon Insurance. Depending where you buy it they may have something, and I believe some places sell Nikon insurance too.

    There's a brand, which sorry I can't think of right now, that you should stay away from (takes months to get your camera back, and half the time it's still broken when they return it to you - ah! I believe its called Mack?)

    We added a personal article policy with our homeowner's insurance that specifically covers all my camera equipment.

    If I run it over with my car, it's replaced. I had to make a list of all the items on the policy and their cost.
    It costs us...$45 a year to insure over $3000 worth of equipment.:D
    That's it.
